This exhibition, featuring a collection of glazed ceramics rich in historical, cultural and aesthetic value, will raise public awareness of the importance of preserving Vietnam's cultural history.

The distinctive collection of Bat Trang pottery from the 14th to 20th century is on display at the National Museum of History on International Museum Day (May 18).

The exhibition "Bat Trang Ancient Pottery" is divided into four parts, including "History of Establishment", "Bat Trang Pottery in the 14th Century", "Bat Trang Pottery in the 15th to 18th Century", and "Bat Trang Pottery in the 19th to 20th Century".
